Congratulations your Royal Highnesses!

A new baby is always a joy. As parents we will cut back on ourselves in hard times but still do our very best for the children. The past few years have been hard to trade through but good nursery retailers continue to flourish as long as they offer excellent service, great design and competitive...

Being a parent is never easy. Whether we work full or part-time or whether we are full time parents; we are bound to get it wrong.

We all know that it is so tricky to be perfect. Actually, we all know it is impossible to be perfect – I just do my best and quite often I don’t think it is good enough so I keep trying harder (or drink a large glass of wine). However, I recently did an...

I remember the first time I saw my own child’s silhouette portrait. Casting my eyes over the delicate cut black paper, I was amazed at each little detail the artist had made using only a tiny pair of scissors. Then the moment came of recognition of my child, even though it was just his...

October 11, 2012

I can’t tell you how often I have told my children to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ and on the whole they are brilliant at remembering their P’s and Q’s. In fact, I think most children are pretty good at this these days. I’m sure yours are too? So why is it that as...

Drowning in September Madness?

From the start of the academic school year until we collapse on Boxing day I’m stressed. There is no point denying the fact that I probably go a bit mad and I may even admit, begrudgingly, that I’m a tinsy-winsy bit difficult to live with? It all starts with the back-to-school rush; new shoes...

RRWW-LOGO-2

If you meet with any new parents in the first few months of parenthood, talk will inevitably turn to weaning.

What many first time parents don’t anticipate is that...

Of course I know that I am not damaging my boys, but in the days leading up to a business trip I get more and more stressed. It has always been the case. It starts about two weeks before I am due to leave and I faff and make arrangements for them while I...

European Russia stretches from the borders of Belarus and Ukraine to the Ural mountains which are over 1000km east of Moscow. Even without the rest of the Russian Federation it is by far the largest country in Europe so the sales opportunity for JoJo Maman Bébé is huge.  It’s all glittery with neon lit...

Welcome to JoJo’s Blog!

Hello, It’s great that you are reading the very first post from our new blog. For the past few years we have shied away from the idea of too much editorial on our website. We felt that you had too much to read already; pamphlets from the hospital, pregnancy and new baby books, news...
